The Shining hotel to dig up pet cemetery

  • 01/10/2013

The Colorado hotel which inspired horror classic The Shining has struck fear into Stephen King fans everywhere by announcing plans to dig up a neighbouring pet cemetery.

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Parr wants to build a wedding pavilion in its place, reports local paper The Coloradoan.

Pet Semetary (sic) is of course the name of another chilling King novel, where deceased pets and people buried in a cemetery located on top of a Native American burial ground are brought back to life as killers.

The hotel plans to move the graves to another site, but a local 'psychic' told The Coloradoan if care isn't taken, spirits "stuck between this world and the next" could plague the project.

The Shining, published in 1977, was inspired by a dream King had at the Stanley Hotel while staying there in the 1970s. Pet Sematary, which came out in 1983, was inspired by a cemetery in his home state of Maine.
